Success Stories

“When I came to the U.S., I thought it was to spend my retirement surrounded by my beautiful grandchildren. But my daughter forced me to do all of the housework and would hit me and yell at me if I did not do something the way she liked it. I did not know there was a place that could help me until someone told me about the New York Asian Women’s Center”

— Mimi, NYAWC Client
